Johnny’s in 65th Kohaku Uta Gassen

The artists for Red and White team are in!

Performing artists for the NHK‘s 65th Kohaku Uta Gassen are revealed. Arashi will again serve as White team moderators while actress Yoshitaka Yuriko will serve as Red team’s moderator.

Johnny’s that will perform under White team, are: SMAP (22), TOKIO (21), Arashi (6), Kanjani8 (3), Sexy Zone (2), and V6 will make their Kohaku debut.

For the rest of the performers, check-out NHK’s website.

Anyway, I’m really glad that V6 are in, Okada deserves it for his hard work in Gushi Kanbee and for not getting the hosting job. I don’t know how Johnny barter his artists but I can’t believe that there will six Johnny’s in Kohaku this year. I was expecting for Sexy Zone to be out since V6 is in but they remained. Sexy Zone isn’t my favorite group but it would have been nice to see other younger groups like Hey!Say!JUMP (okay, I know that they are not that young) or just shoo-in NYC again since Sexy Zone are just three members anyway. XD
